Yes, some anime characters are indeed attractive. (In my opinion)  
I mean, would you watch a show with really ugly people?no.So, It would seem as though you are just being a bastard, saiyanprince.

Or maybe just a mature adult who can tell the difference between reality and fantasy, which you seem to have confused. They are cartoons, not real people and they are not "attractive". Their personalities, their powers, their attire and other attributes make them interesting. The question was, "Does Anyone Actually Think Anime Is "hot"? I posted that because someone said they thought characters were what we would actually view as good looking. Again, they are just cartoons, it's just unrealistic. I am just as much a fan as anyone here. I'm not knocking anyone. "Bastard", wow that's the first bit of hostility I've seen in this forum. Is that just immaturity or a cry from someone who spends more time with fantasy characters than real people? Or maybe both?

Hmm.. I don't appreciate name calling, but maybe you went too far as well?
I'm not going to repeat my post, you might as well read it and accept my opinion too. Does it seem like I can't tell the difference between reality and fantasy? Does it seem that liking fictional characters and finding them attractive doesn't make me a "mature adult"? If you don't consider the characters attractive it's fine with me.
I don't need to be told that "they're not real". I'm very aware of that. But I'm a natural dreamer and like to imagine. I like to get out of the boring world and dream
a bit. Isn't that what fantasies are created for? biggrin.gif

I suppose you are right. I'm just regarding the posts I see from users that seem to be a little "out there". I to dream and fantasize as well, I just don't get the whole fangirl/fanguy whatever thing. I see some people who enjoy anime as much as I do but don't take it so extremely. Again most of that was in response to the "name calling". I feel that most of the fans in here act in a reasonably adult manner despite their ages. The person I quoted obviously did not. I don't mean to rant and that's not the way to be a mature adult. I'm only talking about the extremists, which there are a few. Oh well, didn't mean to take it overboard. It was mostly aimed at love_me_destroyer.

It's okay! wink.gif I'm sorry that I took it so personally. It's also that I get a lot of comments about my obsession with anime and I actually think it's still healthy. I'm glad if you understand my opinion too! biggrin.gif I take anime/books/fiction seriously in general. It's a great thing to be able to dive so deep into the world that it seems real in a way. I like feeling close to it/the characters wink.gif.
Fangirl/fanboy... probably it's when some characters really appeal to you/touch you deeply/ are some people you can relate to.

It's cool. I too feel close to some of the characters like you. I especially relate to Spike in Cobow Bebop. Seeing the future in one eye and the past in the other. Trying to escape the past and having it catch back up with you. And although Ed probably had the worst time becoming a man, I can relate to the harships of growing up and having to be an adult, as well as a father, at an early age. Anime is totally healthy. If you get it and understand it, you probably have a GREAT imagination. Being a writer myself, I enjoy the charcter development and storyline more than anything though.

I personally don't find anime characters hot. My reason for choosing my favorite characters is due to how well they are written (personality/development wise). A good writer should make you suspend your disbelief and actually make you care what happens to the characters in a story.

I wholeheartedly agree. It's the quality of the character that matters. FMA for example had me in suspense the whole series about what was going to happen to ALL the characters.

I'm sure everyone here has seen at least one or two Hentai films. Those are ridiculous. How much time does it take to animate that crap? People who are into porn already have issues. But when u like cartoon porn, come on?!?!?!?! Just my opinion of course. I'm sure someone will chime in here and defend Hentai any moment.

I don't like hentai, I just like yaoi. DDDDD:

But really, it's just a matter of opinion, some people like it, some people don't. Just like you can't see why people like these things, most people can't see why you don't like them. I think stuff like shota is gross, but I don't go insulting everybody who likes it. I understand that they like it for a reason and who am I to judge that?

I'm not judging or insulting, only expressing my opinion. Hentai is a useless form of anime. I would challenge anyone to give me a good reason to like it. Not because I'm judging or because I think I'm right. It gives anime a bad name.

People like it because it turns them on. It's really that simple. And if you really look at it, anime itself has no use. We don't need it, it's just there for our entertainment. Saying hentai is a usless form of anime is kind of hypocritical.

HYPOCRITE- a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion.

I can assure you I am not religious in ANY way. And my appearance is not false. When cartoons start to turn you on, it just SEEMS wrong. Anime, like any form of entertainment, is there for our entertainment of course. And explain to me how anime has no use. I'm just curious about your opinion on the matter.

What about "a person who professes beliefs and opinions that he does not hold"? I never heard about it pertaining to just religion. I wouldn't use the word hypocrite if I didn't know what it ment.

Sorry, didn't mean to offend you or anything. ^^;;

Anime is there to entertain you, pretty much. You can live without it. People before us lived without it. It does nothing but keep us entertained, which other things could do. Sure, we like it, but that doesn't meen it helps us out in our goals, does it? Name one thing necessary in life that requires anime.

Wow, this topic has gotten really heated (no pun intended)(seriosly) tongue.gif
Anyway... I don't know if this counts as anime being important but I met my bf through anime. Long story... but still, it DOES have a purpose as long as you don't take it too seriously.
